Hi Bernd: I'm retired and spend considerable time in San Pedro. Been going the Belize since 1985. I love Belize and considering a future full-time residence in San Pedro. My advice would be book the monthly plan at the Hideaway Hotel so that you will have plenty of time of evaluate Belize. Plan maybe a side trip to the mainland, perhaps Cayo District, to get a since of the diversity Belize has to offer. I do not get any compensation at all from the Hideaway (scouts honor), but there is a good diverse group of locals, ex-pats and Texans there, and the monthly rates are "reasonable". Good luck. Bill

Gone fishing!!
